Covid-19 testing and tracking app at cost price for schools and colleges

Schools and colleges are facing a testing time.

Every industry in the world need to change in response to coronavirus. The education sector is no different. It is not surprising that parents, both in the UK, and especially in other countries which are concerned about the prevalence of covid here, are seeking reassurance that everything possible is being done to protect their children and their children’s education.

How can schools open their doors to all students on the first day of term in September and be confident that have done everything they can to comply with best practice and provide the most virus free learning environment possible? By ensuring all students and staff have been tested. And by having protocols in place for tracking, tracing and testing.

Group Rate Covid Tests

Taylor Education has partnered with several high profile professional UK testing laboratories to negotiate a group rate for UK schools and colleges. The labs have agreed to make the student and staff of education establishments a testing priority and fast-track accurate test results for every test within 24-48 hours. They have also agreed to provide the tests at cost price. This means schools and colleges have access to world-class testing at cost price. In comparison, the NHS testing regime is far slower and is only available for those exhibiting symptoms or in certain groups. This will give schools access to preventative testing.

The labs are all already under contract to provide testing for Public Health England and will carry out testing for you at the same level of accreditation, only faster.

This service is provided with advice and protocols which have been developed by Taylor Education in association with several of the largest UK independent schools which are determined that Michaelmas Term 2020 will be business as usual. It has saved them the inconvenience of paying for and providing quarantine accommodation on top of the inevitable testing that would be needed anyway.

Wearable Track and Trace App

Taylor Education has partnered with a leading tech developer to create wearable track and trace apps, which can be used in conjuction with the testing protocols to give schools optimal reassurance that outbreaks can be immediately contained. All students and staff wear the “fit-bit” style wrist-bands and the school is alerted immediately a positive test occurs of everyone who has been in proximity of the Covid-19 carrier. Action can then be taken immediately to isolate and further test those at risk.

This is the only way to ensure school business can continue usual. The price for this water-resistant wearable app is a very low monthly tariff, and broken wristbands will be replaced immediately free of charge.

Taylor Education is happy to arrange for your school to have access to these unique packages and will help familiarise you with the protocols which other schools have already set in place. Tests can be administered in country of origin and shipped for immediate testing, so pre-departure screening is now also possible. The wearable app is available from the end of July.
